Telairity, ASSIMILATE and 3ality Digital Partner

Telairity, ASSIMILATE and 3ality Digital announced the first system for reviewing and approving 3D post-production content at remote locations anywhere in the world via IP, satellite or other networks. Real-time or off-line viewing of 3D files is now a reality for complete remote collaboration of stereo/3D productions.

To meet the global demand for post production of 3D features and TV productions, the Telairity/ASSIMILATE/3ality Digital system enables the transmission of 3D content to and from remote locations, resulting in unprecedented time and budget savings. This is the first system that allows true global 3D post collaboration for reviewing dailies in a secure, easy to deploy solution.

The 3D Post Remote Review Workflow
Post artists working in SCRATCH v5.1 – conform to color grading to finishing – send two streams of data files – left eye, right eye – to the 3ality 3Play Pro stereoscopic display processor, which creates a single multiplex stream that is sent to the Telairity H.264 encoder for compressing the imagery. From the encoder, an H.264 (MPEG 4) multiplex stream carries the highest-quality imagery over IP to a small set-top box at the client end. The encoder bit-rate can be adjusted at the post end to accommodate the bandwidth at the client end. Clients can then review the files either in real time with the post facility, or offline at their convenience

For off-line reviews, clients can select from the play list, review, and use the HTML remote/review/comment capability in SCRATCH 5.1 to update and tag comments to the content, and return to post. The notes are then fed to and updated in SCRATCH v5.1. This review process is fast and can be repeated as often as necessary for a production.

The Telairity/ASSIMILATE/3ality Digital system will be available before the end of Q2.
